Nancy Grace's Graceful Slip: 'That Was NOT My Nipple!'

"Dancing with the Stars" contestant Nancy Grace was the talk of the week with a wardrobe malfunction after her performance Monday, but Grace told "Extra" it wasn't what it looked like.

"That was not my nipple," Grace adamantly protested backstage to "Extra's" Terri Seymour, after Tuesday's results show. "I'm going to go to my grave saying it did not happen."

Grace told TMZ Monday that what popped out was a pastie called a "Breast Petal." "When I got dressed, I was wearing Petals (nipple covers) and an industrial strength bra... my dancing dress also had a bra sewn into it."

At the after-party on Tuesday, the 51-year-old HLN host said, "If anything ever did happen that way, it was absolutely unintentional."

Grace and dancing partner Tristan MacManus were safe in week 2 of "Dancing with the Stars." See how they fare next week on ABC!
